Yes, He Has a Biological Clock!

We've all heard that women have biological clocks--a fact that drives many to feel they need to hurry up, get hitched and have kids. And while guys generally feel as if they don't need to rush, their ability to procreate may wind down much faster than previously believed.

The Startling News About Aging, Sexuality, and Fertility in Men, men older than 35 are twice as likely to be infertile as men 25 and younger. And if that isn't enough to get guys worried, consider the fact that roughly 10 percent of men trying to father a child are either infertile or what's known as subfertile (meaning below average in that arena). This means men are equally as likely as women to be responsible for conception troubles.

"Infertility isn't just a woman's problem," says author Harry Fisch, M.D., Director of the Male Reproductive Center at Columbia University Medical Center. As for all those famous "old dads" out there--writer Saul Bellow had a kid at 85, actor Tony Randall at 72--Fisch says they're the exception rather than the rule.

What does this mean for all the men out there who dream of having a family someday, far off in the future? They might want to speed up their timetable for finding The One. Says Fisch, "Research shows that men need to care about this."

I was wondering about this so since I have a high power B&L bi-ocular microscope and am curious I took a sample and put it on a slide to check things out. Well at 58 I found out I am still very potent as there were all these little fellows swimming around looking for a home. Now I really have to be careful as I don’t want any of what these can give me, have fathered all the kids that I want.
